Kimbra promoting STC
Check out our dedicated ambassador Kimbra talking about STC in a District MTV article in the UK:
“Not just a talented singer on the cusp of global domination, with an idiosyncratic style, Kimbra is now involved with the So They Can charity. “My good friend from New Zealand moved over to Kenya to start a orphanage for the most under-privileged children there. It’s a non-profit organisation with sustainable farming land and schooling for them. I feel close to it as a friend of mine set it up and it’s just awesome to be in a position now where I have a bit of a voice, even if it’s a small one right now.” With a career trajectory as steep as Kimbra’s so far, that small voice won’t be small for long….”
